Better health and wellness through acupuncture
My life purpose is a life of spiritual awareness and awakening and creating positive experiences and inspiration.
I became an acupuncturist to be more involved in people's lives and help foster positive experiences in their life through better health and wellness.
I am a graduate of Harvard College (BA in Sociology) and the New England School of Acupuncture/MCPHS University, where I graduated with a Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. This is the most comprehensive degree available at NESA, where I studied Chinese and Japanese acupuncture styles and Chinese herbal medicine, providing more than 400 treatments to 150 patients during my clinical internship.
I continue to study, practice, and refine Hari-style acupuncture under Sensei T. Koei Kuwahara. I've completed over 350 hours of training under his direct supervision.
I also practice and teach tai chi, qigong, and meditation, as taught by Bruce Frantzis. These practices were by far the biggest factors in influencing me to learn and apply the healing arts of acupuncture and Oriental medicine. Previously, I was a student, teacher, board member, and Executive Director at Brookline Tai Chi, which was one of the largest tai chi schools in the country.
